Located in the center of the bustling city, Bastejkalna Park offers greenery as far as the eye can see, set apart by a river with tiny waterfalls and bridges. Take a walk along its flower-lined pathways, rest on one of the benches, or observe swans and ducks in their rituals of courtship and preening. You'll find sculptures and memorial monuments dedicated to fallen fighters in 1991. The bridges at this 150-year-old city garden are filled with padlocks placed there in the name of love--feel free to add your own.

  • The park is Bastejkalna, which is built along the canal in Latvia Old Town following the Daubawa River. It is an artificial canal, but it is moderately meandering and the trees and lawns around it are neatly arranged.

  • Super beautiful and clean park! Like everything in Riga not overly large but that's why this park fits so well into the cityscape! Absolutely TOP!

  • Nice park in the center of Riga with many different little points of interest like statues, water features and little bridges criss-crossing the river. A good place to enjoy a stop in the sun while visiting the city.
